When my husband and I tied the knot in 2013, we had a registrar come to our licensed venue in Northumberland. We didn’t realise there were any other options. We didn’t get to meet our registrar beforehand, our vows were from a tick box system and our actual ceremony lasted around 9 short minutes. It was absolutely lovely but I couldn’t help feel that it was a little impersonal and not very ‘us’. No-one had been on hand to inspire us into creating something truly wonderful and magical. The ceremony is the whole point of your wedding day, it should be the focus, it should be beautiful and it shouldn’t be rushed.

As your celebrant, I will sit with you, I will listen and I will guide. Together we will create the perfect ceremony to include your ideas and wishes, spiritual beliefs, dreams and own personal love story.

Not being tied to a licensed venue means the world is your oyster – widen the horizons and look to your dream wedding location. Think Outdoor Wedding Ceremony. Think Beach Ceremony. Think Bluebell Wood. Think Wedding on the stormy shores of the Northumberland coast or Romantic Ceremony in a far away destination where the sun always shines. Think outside the box and let your imagination soar.

My aim as your celebrant is to bring a young, fresh approach and allow you freedom of choice to ensure your ceremony is a true representation of you as a couple. We’ll bring together love, laughter, family and friends and encompass your dreams and beliefs, sealing them together in a magical and unique way.

Many people wish to include a spiritual element to their ceremony, I have plenty of inspiration on board, including but not limited to Handfasting ceremonies, Jumping the Broom and Sand Ceremonies. If you have a particular spiritual element in mind, something personal, something unique, then I can help to make this possible.

My fee for weddings starts from £300* to include first meeting with you at your venue, script preparation, rehearsal the day before and the ceremony on the day. I am available for wedding ceremonies in Carlisle and throughout Cumbria including The Lake District, throughout Northumberland and Newcastle upon Tyne. I am also happy to travel outside of these areas, please get in touch for a quotation.

*travel expenses may apply

**please note, I am a celebrant and not a registrar and cannot conduct the legal part of your ceremony. If you would like your marriage to be recognised in law, this is done at the registry office at an earlier / later time of your choosing. Most registry offices offer a short registration for around £50-£60.
